F.A Cup Fourth Round
Chelsea vs Bradford City
Kick Off: 3.00pm
at Stamford Bridge
Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has decided to stick with the same starting eleven that defeated Millwall in City's F.A Cup third round replay ten days and earned the club's their mouth-watering trip to Chelsea.
That means Parkinson has stuck with forwards Jon Stead and James Hanson, resisting the temptation to give with five players in defence or midfield.
Ben Williams plays in goal for the ineligible Jordan Pickford, while Andy Halliday remains in midfield after completing his permanent move this week to the Coral Windows Stadium.
Francois Zoko, who extended his City loan until the end of the season on Thursday, is named on the bench at Stamford Bridge. Irishman Billy Clarke is back on the bench with Zoko after missing six games with a knee injury.
